Students gave considerable thought to story structure and sequencing. They enjoyed working on their projects in class and at home.
– Mr. Memmott, Computers Teacher
My ESL students used this to show humor across languages and cultures. They loved it!
– Ms. Smith, ESL
It allowed an alternate form of a unit project for a set of English classes. The teacher and students were very excited about using it and enjoyed the process.
– Mr. DiSalvo, Tech Specialist
Pixton was a great professional tool that was user friendly and engaging for my students. I especially liked how well it works with low motivated students and students who have trouble with reading. My students were able to show the range of ways they connected and interpreted a text, offering the whole class a diverse range of analysis.
– Ms. Tannous, 12th Grade
Great experience with creativity and expressing ideas in static comic form. It was great to share each work with other classmates and be able to print to take home. I see many uses for Pixton in my classroom and in my school.
– Mr. Battisti, 6th Grade Humanities
Our comprehensive project was to create our own graphic novel and to send a copy of it to the author that inspired us. We are now able to do that thanks to you folks at Pixton. Thank you so much for allowing us to have you in our classroom. I will be recommending you to my colleagues and students.
– Mr. Geren, 9th Grade English
It motivated the students to do their work. I used it to have them illustrate literary vocabulary.
– Ms. Bushby, 6th Grade
Pixton.com is unprecedented in making comic strip generation considerably simple. With its simple click-and-drag interface, Pixton enables its users with a fast, easy, and interactive way to create detailed and professional-looking comic strips.
– Jason Alyesh
What a great website! It's so creative and fun. I love the colors, the styles, all the options for creating comics. It's something that I looked forward to spending time on, because ideas come at different times. Terrific!
– iParenting Media Awards' Reviewer
Awesome site with limitless possibilities! You can have kids do comics to demonstrate understanding in almost any subject... and the kids have fun while doing it! Plan to use it all the time next year.
– Ms. Reeves, 5th Grade
Students were interested and enjoyed using Pixton. Using the program was easy for most students and all got the hang of things quickly.
– Ms. Martin, 8th Grade
Fun, imaginative, hands on way to express and share ideas.

This "teacher's secret weapon" is worth every penny. Put one of the site's how-to videos on your interactive whiteboard and count the seconds until everyone is hooked.
– Christy Crawford, Technology
My French Immersion students were very engaged in creating comic strips of their life story. We then downloaded the strips and showed them through a projector while the student gave an oral presentation on their life to date.

Pixton for Schools is wonderful! We accomplished quite a stunning looking project. The kids had so much fun using the product and they saw the stories that they covered in a whole new light.
– Ms. Dempsey, 12th Grade Languages
Pixton was an excellent tool in my Grade 10 writing course. The ease of evaluation, setting projects, class rubrics, and teacher supervision was amazing. Student projects were creative, informative and students were very much engaged. Great software and a great site for teachers to manage classes and assign projects. Five stars all the way.
– Mr. Tulk, Grade 10 English
I teach gifted students. They loved Pixton! This was a great new medium for them to get creative.
– Ms. Mattingly, 4th / 5th Grade
Pixton for Schools gave my class a challenge to put together their narrative writing into comic form, but also gave them great satisfaction and enjoyment in being able to produce something unique and creative.
– Ms. Shaw, Year 7
Pixton is one of my favorite web tools. I have my students read an informational text and explain it in a comic. It is a rigorous assignment because they must take an informational reading and turn it into a narrative. The kids love it and so do I!
– Ms. Hartman, Technology Integration
Pixton for Schools has huge value. The students were connected and found the learning fun. The programme engaged our low acheivers and they found pixton very rewarding.
– Ms. Grieve
Pixton was great fun and really got the pupils engaged. Through creative presentation they produced some high quality understanding of the topic.
– Ms. Martin, Grade 9 Arts
True innovation comes along only once in a blue moon. Pixton has found a way to redefine comics and transform them into both a learning tool and a social community.
– Steven Schneiderman
It gave my students a new way to express themselves.
– Ms. Sasscer, Computers/Math
Pixton is a great tool for educators to help extend the lesson being taught. Students are given the opportunity to improve their creative writing skills through the use of a fun, interactive web 2.0 tool. I have shared this site with the members of my site, Technology Integration in Education.
– Mr. Limperis, Technology Facilitator
A mind blowing, game changing and all around awesome web-based comic strip generation tool. Following in the footsteps of Flickr, YouTube and Twitter, Pixton is poised to join the short list of cutting-edge, top-tier and truly innovative social web tools.
– Derek E. Baird
We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.
– Mr. Smith, Teacher
It allowed my students to grasp a better understanding of what dialogue is all about and how to use/write it.
– Mr. Jette, 10th Grade
Students were able to write and share their writing in a motivating way.
– Mr. Rand, 8th Grade Technology
Pixton for Schools was a great way for students to practice written dialogue using the Spanish phrases we learned in class. I also loved the feature that allowed me to create a rubric on the site, use it for grading, and have students self-evaluate with the same rubric.
– Ms. Perez, 10th Grade Spanish
My students created a graphic novel. I had them use the theme from Metamorphosis by Kafka and make his message in a setting and story relevant to today's teens. They were required to use symbolism, motifs, and other literary elements. Using comics made the application of literature fun and exciting!
– Ms. Franchois, Teacher
Teaching Shakespeare in our middle school is always a challenge. Pixton comics provided motivation for comprehension. Thanks for such an awesome website for creativity.
– Grace Mueller, teacher
Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.
– Mr. Gray, Grade 11
I have never seen my students so engaged with a lesson. I was amazed at how much effort and creativity they put into their comics. Normally, their attention span lasts about twenty minutes. With Pixton, my students were focused for days!
– Colleen G., Social Studies
My students loved it! Pixton was a fun way for students to summarize a book. I think this would be a great alternative to a test, and what could be better than using technology to do so? I am impressed with all students could do with their comic strip.
– Ms. Lange, 7th Grade
The kids were very engaged and were learning skills like sequencing, sentence structure and story building while having a great time.
– Ms. Stein, 6th Grade English
Using Pixton for Schools as a way for students to show what they know was brilliant. My students wrote a comic strip in Bahasa Indonesia.
– Ms. Hill, Grade 7
